Final Week-end round up

On Saturday, Middlesex Tamils were the visitors to Long Ditton, having replaced Surrey Lankians, who pulled out. Batting first, it looked like Middlesex Tamils were on for a huge score, but a good fight back from the Long Ditton bowlers ensured the final total was just under 200. After tea, Long Ditton got off to a good start, from openers Nick Turnbull and Ian Antonio, but just as Long Ditton tried to increase the tempo, Nick and Ian fell in quick succession. James Chapple then scored quicky, but again fell just before getting into the 30’s. There was then a bit of a middle order collapse, but Mikey Hinchliffe, Dave Oldham and Mark Lambert added a bit of respectability to the score, with Long Ditton finishing 50 runs short of the total, off their 40 overs.

On Sunday, the traditional end of season fixture against the Pretenders was played. Batting first, Long Ditton got off to a good start, but again failed to make the most of it and a middle order collapse for the second day running occurred. Ben Rhymes, having arrived late, scored some big blows, making 27, which helped Long Ditton score 121.

In reply, Long Ditton were soon amongst the wickets, but as ususal, there was one stubborn batsman, who anchored the innings, to ensure the Pretenders won by 3 wickets. For full score-cards, please click on the play-cricket link on the right.

Seniors’ round-up 17 & 18 September

There was no game at the club on Saturday, but following the downpours of Saturday, Dulwich were the visitors, following the pull-out by Hook and Southborough.

Batting first, after a gentleman’s toss, due to Long Ditton players arriving at varying times throughout the afternoon after football, rugby etc, LDCC got off to a poor start, with Nick Turnbull being caught for 1, chasing a wide ball. Simon Sweeney steadied the ship, finishing off his season with a fluent 75, before being stumped. James Chapple and Gareth Plunkett then chipped in with 23 and 29 respectively, before the LDCC youngsters saw the club reach 177 for 7 off their 40 overs.

After tea, the Dulwich openers got the away team off to a good start, before James Chapple edged closer to his 100th wicket of the season, bowling Bickmore. Straker hit 37, before being deceived by a slower ball from Matt Baker, but it was Ford who did the damage, making 80 to help Dulwich move towards the total. Despite further wickets from bowlers Simon Sweeney and Joe Rogers, Dulwich got home with 1.5 overs to spare.

Seniors’ Round-Up 10 and 11 September

Long Ditton beat Weybridge Vandals on Saturday at home, with the first and second XI now playing together as one side, following the end of the League season. It was good to see a couple of our youngsters, Joe Rogers and Matt Baker helping out the opposition, who arrived 9 men short. Weybridge Vandals made 117 off their 35 overs. In reply, Long Ditton got off to a nervy start, being reduced to 17 for 4 at one point. However, John Parkins and James Chapple steadied the ship, to see Long Ditton safely home.

On Sunday, a very strong Chessington side were the visitors and with Long Ditton taking to the field at the start, it was inevitable that Chessington would rack up a hue score. They were all out for 350 in 41 overs, with Long Ditton very much looking forward to tea. In reply, Long Ditton managed to get over the 100 mark with the loss of 5 wickets, before proceedings were brought to a halt in the 27th over by rain, Chessington having won on a faster scoring rate. All credit to everyone who pitched up on Sunday for Long Ditton to play the game. It was very much appreciated by the club.

Seniors’ Round-up 3rd and 4th September

Surrey Lankians were the team who came to Stokes Field on Saturday, to play a friendly game. The game started a little late, as the opposition were waiting for all their players to arrive. With one eye on the light, it was decided that the match would consist of 35 overs per side. As most of the first XI looked on, drinking and sunning themselves on the boundary, Long Ditto batted first and posted 173 for 9 off their allotted overs. Although several players got a good start, none went onto make a good score and this made a difference, with Surrey Lankians easily winning by 7 wickets. For the score card, click on the Play-Cricket link on the right.

There was no cricket on Sunday, as just as play was about to commence against the Australian High Commission, the heavens opened. Even though a very enjoyable tea was taken early, the game was called off without a ball being bowled.
